Nike Debuts Kobe Bryant Welcome Back Commercial vs Raptors

Kobe Bryant is retuning to the court for the first time tonight in eight months after rupturing his Achilles tendon against the Golden State Warriors this past April. With his return, Nike is releasing a new commercial, which can be seen as a testament of how hard Bryant worked to get back to the floor after that fateful night. The commercial is narrated by Ice Cube:

If he never got up, he’d still be called a hero. And if he hadn’t stepped back on to the court, he’d still be a Hall of Famer. And if he didn’t hit those free throws, he would still go down in basketball history. And if he never came back to the game, he’d be a living legend. But he wouldn’t be Kobe Bryant.

For tonight, Kobe will wear his Kobe 8 System shoe. For more information, you can check out the page on NikeInc.com.
